The RCT&HS Year 2019 railroad calendar is now available featuring the photos of Dale Woodland. Mr. Woodland began taking photos in black and white in 1952. His first photos were of Reading Company Alco RS# #509 at Abrams Yard near Bridgeport, PA. Living in Lansdale allowed frequent photography of the Bethlehem Branch of the Reading. Dale has authored several books on the Reading Railroad, writes regular monthly news columns for Railpace magazine, and has contributed many articles to nationally-focused magazines such as Classic Trains. Finally, Dale has volunteered his time for many years with the RCT&HS, most importantly as Museum Chairman for our Reading Railroad Heritage Museum.
